I’m still waiting for Barbara Kopple’s documentary about the Dixie Chicks, Shut Up and Sing, to make it to the ‘ville, but until then, here’s an audio interview with her on FAIR’s Counterspin series (note: the interview is about twenty minutes into the show).
Completely Unrelated Update: Just a quick pointer to this NYT article on DC’s new graphic novel series aimed at teenage girls. If you push aside some of the marketing hype, there’s an interesting discussion about the representation of women in most superhero comics, as well as their attempts to recruit writers for this new series.
Another Unrelated Update: Some Saturday video fun courtesy of David at GreenCine. First, this priceless video of Rex Reed talking about the Oscars with Dick Cavett in 1971. Second, the cool new blog Expanded Cinema, which curates some obscure and compelling avant-garde and experimental films.
Also, I’ve been planning to link to Girish’s very interesting post about the categorization of his massive VHS collection (related “VHS is Dead” post, in part because his comments helped inform my reading of Barbara Klinger’s discussion of video collections in her recent book, Beyond the Multiplex, but alas, I’ve been a little distracted lately.
